Monthly Stock News

Billy Graham was born in November 1918 in North Carolina. It is estimated that during his lifetime he preached in person to more than 200 million people in 185 countries and territories. Many more people have heard his message via television and films. He also wrote more than 30 books some of which have been translated into other languages.

Some of us may have heard him preach in person or know someone who has done so. If we have not heard him in person we may have seen him in a video or film or have read one of his books. What we may not know are details of his earlier life. He grew up on a dairy farm but as well as working on the farm he liked to read books. When he was 15 years old he became a Christian in response to the ministry of a travelling evangelist. He was ordained in 1939 and worked as a church pastor before joining Youth For Christ. In 1943 he married Ruth, the daughter of medical missionaries in China. They were married for more than 60 years and had 3 daughters and 2 sons. Their family grew as 19 grandchildren, 44 great-grandchildren and 6 great-great-grandchildren came along.

As a result of a crusade in Los Angeles in 1949 he became known on an international level. As an evangelist he has preached in a wide variety of locations; anywhere from remote African villages to big cities. Following the death of Billy Graham in February of this year a book called ‘Hear My Heart - what I would say to you’ has been published (£9.99). The book contains articles by Billy Graham from 1955 onwards. In these articles he covers many topics beginning with what it means to be a Christian and how to grow in faith. He also talks about the reasons behind some of his own decisions.

The lives of many people have been influenced by Billy Graham’s ministry and the book has tributes from several well-known people such as J I Packer, Philip Yancey, and John Stott. In an afterword Rick Warren talks of seven lessons he personally has learned from Billy Graham including the importance of integrity, humility, having a global vision , maintaining focus and making use of modern technology.
